- Being asked by a grown child to cosign a loan so that he can move out of your basement.
- Needing credit to prove that you are creditworthy enough to qualify for credit.
- Not being able to afford insurance.
- Cashing your long-term savings to solve a short-term need.
- Needing a car to get to work and work to afford a car.
- Being upside down on a house that you can’t afford to live in.
- Spending money in the hopes of making money.
